DropDAV: An easy way to link iWork for iPad and Dropbox. Is anyone using this? In one of the comments he said that he was using Webdav compatibility without this software.
jlbunting solved the issue:
I was the one who first started this thread. I want to report, I figured out how to get WebDav working on Pages. All I had to do was upgrade to 4.2 and install Pages 1.3. This fixed the WebDav certificate issues I was having. Now I can login and import/export to WebDav. I can access the folder on my computer and it works perfect. I am using Bluehost and Webdisk for the WebDav.
Apple – Support – Discussions – Pages and all other iWork 09 apps …. Seems to be a font conflict. Has a great link to a free and legal version of the older software LFE. thanks Peter!
To speed up the font selection you can divide them up into sets and turn the sets on until one triggers the problem. Then divide that set up again until you pin the culprit.
Font Management tools, like Linotype Font Explorer (free) can work some of this out for you.
Not really. shawn_d says it best “iWork.com will only allow you to add comments and notes to the online version of the document. You can download the document (if the document’s author has allowed it) and edit the downloaded document on your Mac or iPad. If you are the person who originally shared it on iWork.com, you can re-publish it in its place as well. All the editing will happen offline, though.
Tom is correct that you can directly edit an iWork document stored on an iDisk, as long as that iDisk is mounted on a Mac – it isn’t possible if you are connected to the iDisk through the Web. Aside from both MobileMe and iWork.com being Apple services, though, there is no connection between that and iWork.com.
Hope this helps”
It is bizarre the kind of limitations it has. You can read more from Mr. Garcia here. “–iWork: ’09 files only. iPad iWork Apps do grant access to iWork.com–
For iWork users, the iPad may support Microsoft formats, but it does NOT support iWork ’08. If you want to have your iPad and Mac work off the same files, you need iWork ’09 on your Mac. However, an interesting remedy (which I haven’t tried fully yet) is iWork.com. In order to participate in the beta of the site, you need iWork ’09 or an iWork app for the iPad. (I was a little suprised, but I was able to sign up for and activate just owning Numbers for iPad, and not iWork ’09) From there, you should be able to interact with your documents using Safari on your Mac, without iWork ’09. Considering the time of year, I can’t justify upgrading to it, so I intend to try this solution until the next iWork comes out. The downsides are, of course, cloud computing, and iWork.com does not seem to allow creation of new documents, only working with existing ones uploaded from iPad or Mac. What that means is I must create a document on my iPad to work with it on iWork.com. And by interesting extension, while iWork.com works with all 3 apps, since I only have Numbers, I can’t use iWork.com to use Pages or Keynote in the cloud on the cheap, as I can’t create a document without owning their appropriate app.”
